(VIDEO) Obama Leaves "By their Creator" Out of Declaration of Independence

On September 15th, President Obama addressed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, in which he incorporated The Declaration of Independence into his speech.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
However, Obama stated:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Notice an important word missing in Obama's statement? The phrase "by their Creator" maybe?
Watch for yourself. (He starts the Declaration of Independence reference at 0:53.)
Could he have misread his teleprompter? Possibly, but his scowl and blinking eyes in lieu of the word "Creator" tells us otherwise. Obama, if you don't think the Creator endows us with our unalienable Rights, who does? The government?
